I'm trying to fine tune my permissions here, and want to have a contributor, but
do not want the contributor to have access to change the web parts. In SPS 2003,
a Contributor could "add content to existing document libraries and lists". What
would the equivalent permission structure look like for that same capability in

Make a copy of the existing Contribute permission level and remove the following
permissions from the Personal permissions  section.

Add/Remove Personal Web Parts
Update Personal Web Parts

They will not be able to add or Remove Web parts  to the page. They also won't
be able to change  Web parts already on the page to be personalized.

I was under the impression that "Personal Permissions" were when they
had it in the personal view only, not the shared view.

Contribute users can't edit Web Parts on a shared view without creating a
personal view. Only Full Control (or maybe Designer) users can edit the Web
Parts in the shared view. So if they edit an existing Web part or try to remove
it from the page they automatically create a personal view. If they don't have
those permissions  they can't.
